Himalayan Art Festival 2020 has been canceled due to COVID-19. Himalayan Art Festival was initiated by E-Arts Nepal in 2017 with the hope of the finest collection of Nepali artworks.

In a press statement released by the festival team, it stated, “Unfortunately, the artists and art world is facing a huge crisis during this pandemic time. We pray and hope that we will rise again in 2021 and look forward to working together.”

Himalayan Art Festival is an annual event that embraces a comprehensive, inclusive and holistic approach towards contemporary Nepali art by presenting works of more than one hundred fifty different artists that represent a multitude of genres of artworks such as paintings, paubha, sculptures, installations, photographs, printmaking, ceramic, as well as live performances.

The five-day long festival is full of various art activities such as Musical Performances, Art Talks/Panel Discussion, Kids Art Education Program, live performances from contemporary artists, theater artists and Kathak dancers and ceramic firing workshops.

The festival has created a Nepali art platform for local collectors/buyers as well as helped to encourage Nepali corporate houses to invest in Nepali art. And to create a platform to raise awareness of the different art practices in Nepal.

The festival has been organized by E-Arts Nepal, an online art gallery that was established in 2010 to promote contemporary Nepali art in the global market.
